Engage your production team before the venue

Sometimes we’re the last ones to the party. Our clients have booked the venue and engaged an event management agency… then almost as an after thought contacted us to help with technical production. But actually, it’s important to engage your production team before the venue.

What if—as happened this week—you want a stunning wide screen set, but there’s just not enough space in the room you’ve booked for the back projection, the set and all your lovely delegates?

The solution? Call us first! We won’t hold you to anything! Just pick up the phone for a ‘no obligation’ chat about whether your dreams for your event can come true at the venue you have in mind.

Athens conference: projected stage set design

Innovative conference stage set design

Projected backdrop in Athens.

Using 10 ultrashort throw projectors and Dataton Watchout, we were able to project still and moving images across the angled flats, using a mixture of stills and video we continually changed the backdrop for each presenter and colours of other set panels. We also internally lit with LED the hi-tec perforated screen legs to produce really dynamic stage set.

London: 170ft (52M) brick wall projection screen

We were asked to provide a 180 degree floor to ceiling projected images seamlessly blended at a media event for a new range of clothing for London Mens Fashion last week at the interestingly named Vinyl Factory in London. The challenge was to keep the installation simple by not fixing into the buildings infrastructure by hanging projectors, We used 12 Ultra short throw projectors with incredibly short throw lenses. At distance of 1M from the projection surface, these projectors give a 2M wide picture!

Using Dataton Watchout we were able to blend the individual projected images to create one 52m x 2.5m image area wrapping around the gallery. This allowed us to run smooth moving still images, live cameras and video around the room creating a dynamic backdrop for the new range. More info

London Party

We were asked by Four Marketing to provide a focus backdrop for Arena+ magazine’s 20th anniversary party.

We used two high-power projectors, blended to make one screen for the party at Stone Island’s flagship store in London.

The content was produced with one of our Dataton Watchout systems, using 3 varying length time lines with video, photographs of magazine covers and advertisements. All 3 timelines were different lengths, so the program continually varied throughout the evening. The image was projected over a matt white background, with a gloss white vinyl Stone Island logo, which added another dimension to the final image.

The focal points was the projection, flanked by 2 high power LED uplighters.
